The Pont au Double is a historical bridge in Paris and has retained its name from when a bridge connecting the left bank of the river to the hospital on the island that was constructed, yet a toll was put in place of a double farthing, and this is where the name originated from in the 1600s, even though this bridge you can see today, like in the photo above, only dates from the late 1800s.
